Bioethics and Aporia of Psyche is an international transdisciplinary symposium organised by the Centre of Excellence for Integrative Bioethics, Croatian Bioethics Society, Ludruga Association, and Croatian Institute of Public Health, with various co-organisers joining each year. It is the central project of the Scientific board for bioethics and psyche, and Luka Janeš is the current President of the Organisation committee.
In short period of time, the cycle of public hearings Aporia of Psyche: Philosophical, Psychiatric and Bioethical Perspectives, which was initiated in 2016 to contribute to positive changes in dealing with mental health problems and provide a platform for unheard voices, became widely known, well attended, an gained an international character, upon what grounds a conclusion was made to continue the growth by forming a collaborative environment for all the scientific and extra-scientific perspectives relevant in battling mental health issues.
The intention profiled the symposium to include research reports, keynote lectures, workshops, round tables, public hearings, experiments, art performances and exhibitions.
